“For me, Surge symbolizes community, a space where I can dream for my community, for our future, and for my ancestors. We are our ancestors’ wildest dreams, and joining the Surge community provides me the opportunity to embark on a transformative journey alongside fellow change-makers. I am beyond excited about the opportunity to build relationships and harness my voice to advocate for our students, educators, and communities. My goal is to create spaces where future educators of Color can belong and to give them the tools they need to catalyze radical change within our communities.”
